Merry Christmas Everyone!! I'll let the pictures do most of the talking!!
Yum! Christmas dinner is delicious! Doodle Bug ate turkey and yams and mashed potatoes!
After dinner, there was a loud knock at the door. Doodle Bug followed Grandma to see who it was...
SANTA CLAUS came to visit on Christmas Eve!!!
He had a bag FULL of presents for Doodles! He must have been a very good boy this year;o)
Doodles didn't know what to think of Santa, but he definitely did NOT want to sit on Santa's lap.
He kept staring at Santa as if he were very familiar.
Doodles helped Uncle M open gifts.
OK! Get me out of here, I've had enough of Santa!
I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus...
We all had a wonderful Christmas Eve at Grandma's house. We went home and Doodles went right to bed...he was VERY tired from a day FULL of excitement! That night, Santa came to our house and dropped off some more presents for Doodle Bug.
The next morning, Doodles woke up and walked out to his new playroom upstairs that Santa made for him! Here is Doodles seeing it for the very first time.
(hand is ALWAYS in the pants!)
Ooooh! A trampoline from Aunt C...
...and a play gym from Santa!
Doodles wanted to say Merry Christmas to his best friend...
Afterwards, Doodles got all dressed up for Christmas dinner at our house. I tried to get a picture without the hand in the pants...but I wasn't very successful!
Here is my attempt at a Yule Log! I made a long chocolate cake and rolled it up in a dish cloth. When it cooled, I unrolled it and spread it with peppermint icing. Then rolled it up into a log shape. I drizzled melted white chocolate on the top and sprinkled it with crushed candy canes.
Doodles seemed to enjoy his second Christmas! He spends all day playing with all of his new toys! His Mom and Dad enjoyed spending time with everyone from both sides of our families. We all made some long lasting memories and continued some meaningful traditions.
